How to get your child's Facebook password


If you are already aware of the dangers of Facebook, Myspace, chatrooms, etc, and suspect that your child may be endangering him or herself, it might be a parental necessity for you to monitor your child's activity on Facebook, Myspace or other websites to ensure their safety. If you own the computer that your child uses to access the internet, it may not only be fully legal to access or monitor their Facebook, Myspace or email accounts, but in some cases it may be your duty to do so.

How to find your child's passwords

Unfortunately there is no magic code or hack to obtain passwords for Facebook, email, Myspace, chat-rooms or other systems. Most of these systems are very secure and are difficult if not nearly impossible to 'crack'. You can however capture or record their password as they use it on each system by installing password capturing software, otherwise known as child safety monitoring software. These programs are inexpensive and can be easily downloaded directly from the internet and installed on your computer in minutes.

Find the passwords and have full access

By using one of the password finder or child surveillance programs available for download on the internet, you can see who your child is chatting with or sending email to and help ensure their safety.  These keylogger type programs will record and log everything typed on your computer (such as passwords, chat-room chats, emails) and allow you to review it later.  Most of these keylogger or parental monitoring programs are inexpensive, they often have a free-trials and they can be easily downloaded and installed in minutes.  The better keylogger programs work well because once installed they are virtually undetectable - No other users of the computer will know it's there, and YOU are the only person that can access it.  Prices will range from free to $99, but we recommend staying away from the free programs as they may not be trustworthy and may have little or no support.

Re: Getting my child's password for Facebook
I know everyone is going to get onto me for posting here and actually being a child, but I have something to say. I wish, as children, we could have more trust, at least for those of us who deserve it by doing well in school and having a good personality. Children do need privacy. I do not feel like I'm trusted and appreciated as an individual, and I do not believe there is a logical reason for this. The only reason is because of my age, which does not say who I am. I cannot be accurately described by that number. Some children do not want their parents to know how serious they really are, especially when they act goofy and carefree in real life. That's the way I am. Maybe that's an unusual thing, but I really don't know. I have a use for social media other than talking to friends. I post the way I really feel about things--I mean important things--like the entire world and the human race and my opinions on war, and sometimes slightly less important things, such as the situation of the person who is being bullied by literally almost my whole school (I don't use real names, though, and I don't use my real name either on social media, so it can't be tracked down). I never engage in inappropriate behavior online. I just hope to change the world, one step at a time, starting with social media, and I would not want my parents to know how much deeper and more serious I am than they think. Please only monitor your child if you think they're doing something wrong.

You people disgust me! You have obviously failed and raising your children and now you are failing again by trying to snoop and sneak around and you aren't even any good at doing that! BE A PARENT! Talk to you children, set boundaries, set rules, and enforce & follow-through!

Re: Finding your kid's Facebook password
Sometimes there comes a time where a child is making a huge mistake and to CATCH that child in the action of lying in a VERY big way, sometimes you need their facebook password. They could be hiding incriminating things. FOr example a child lying about being raped. Before that parent phones the cops theyre going to make sure that little girl isnt lying. Because she was. And facebook messages that she could have deleted were the only thing that saved that poor guy.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password

The iphone password/PIN and Facebook password are not related, but if the phone is locked and you can unlock it you might be able to. If she uses Facebook on her iPhone and the App that she is using does not have a lock/require a different password, then if you have access to the iphone you would probably have access to her Facebook.

You don't need to hack your kids Fakebook account. Just make up a few fake fakebook id's and be-friend them.

Re: How to get child's password

All parents can trust their child. It is others that cannot be trusted! Seriously have you heard of the Omeagle site and the grotesque sexting vulgar language used to young teens and young adults on there?
A lot of young people take risks and don't realize the true dangers that can arise because they are so vulnerable and trusting of others. No matter how they are brought up to believe you can just hope that you instilled enough information for them to make good judgement and keep safe. But until then they always need their parents protection from becoming a victim to strangers that could care less of their well being. oh and this was a site that middle school age kids found out about at school. as parents we have to keep up with all the new language also on the internet. Always keep good communication with them so they will come to you with anything they face. At an early age the computer and your child should be in a room that you are able to monitor at all times. Parental contols of sites and time limits should be placed on the monitor also.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password
Anyone here who needs to go behind your child's back to get their passwords has already failed as a parent. Give up already and accept defeat. If by the age your kid has access to social media, if he/she still doesn't know how to act according to their own sense of morals, then clearly you as parents have failed your duty. You parents shouldn't spend so much time protecting your kids from the "big bad world" and should probably work on your own inadequacies as educators and calm your paranoia a bit.

He does have a point. If you have to go to such underhanded measures, you have obviously failed in your upbringing. However, unlike what he said, that does not mean you should give up on them. Just don't resort to such low measures.

Re: How to get your kid's Facebook password

The world is big and bad and you should protect your children from it. You give them enough freedom to establish their own identity when they're old enough (my daughter is 12) and allow them to make mistakes so they can learn from them. I certainly wouldn't suggest isolating them from the web or being excessively attentive in their business; but protecting them is what good parents do. I have all of my daughter's account passwords because I created them for her. She also has learned what happens if she decides to create her own account without my knowledge under an alias (as well as 15 other middle school kids using Gmail accounts under aliases while at school on school time and resources).

The "paranoia" you mention is actually staying two steps ahead of them; the web can be a viable education tool if utilized properly or it can be a corrupting, source of bullying that makes your teenage kid want to off themself (we've never heard of that happening in the news).

So my suggestion to you sir, would be to stick to criticizing people's broken english and grammatical errors because your parental advice is unhelpful, and quite frankly the dumbest f*ckin thing I've heard in quite some time.

It's not everyone else's fault that your parent's were related at birth, and ended up not wanting you. Broken English Superstar; what a hero you've become. It's people like you that don't have the balls to show your face let alone raise a child.

You've got to give them freedom, but more importantly you've got to stay in their face. People are asking for help and you belittle them; genius.

Your character is best defined by the way you act when you feel no one is watching; Fear the Dad.... Fear him. because I'm always watching. And looking out for your kids too if the opportunity presents and no one else seems to be. Wrap your troll little nubs around that b*tch!

I just hope that for your child's sake, your parenting skills are a lot better than your writing and grammar skills. But sadly, something tells me that is not the case.

Re: How to get your kid's password
Parents aren't failures if they're having to check in on what they're kids are doing online. Sometimes kids don't think clearly or don't always disclose all that they do with friends. Parents don't give up on their kids!!! They do whatever it takes to make sure that their kids are safe. For those parents that are not going to give up on their kids there's a company called webscry that can help you see exactly what your teenager talks about with their friends.

DO you HAVE CHILDREN??? I HOPE NOT. NO PARENT IS PERFECT AND MISTAKES ARE MADE NO MATTER HOW GOOD A PARENT you TRY TO BE. SO, you ARROGANT IDIOT, NO REAL PARENT SHOULD EVER GIVE UP TRING TO PROTECT THEIR CHILD FROM HARM NO MATTER WHO IS AT FAULT. you WOULD BE SPENDING YOUR TIME MORE WISELY BY TAKING A REAL LOOK AT YOUR LACK OF WHAT UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR A CHILD REALLY MEANS. OR DO you BLAME ALL YOUR SHORTCOMINGS ON YOUR MOMMY AND DADDY?

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password

I just want to say for those that dont believe in standing between your children and harm you are full of shit..You either have no children or your a child yourself...In this day and age you have to do whatever it takes to get between your child and harms way thats called tough love...

You can sit there and say we shouldnt spy on them but its called trying to protect them from people like you that dont give a shit and for all we know you are one of those predators....I just got a call from the police last night because my daughter that is 18 was drunk out of her mind they hit a car in a parking lot with my van the security gaurds called the police they tried to get out of a different exit by lifting the gates they got caught again..Then the police got them but they were already out of the van and called us to pick her up...She has been telling us when she takes the van to work that she would never drink and drive well guess what we trusted her...She then proceeded to pull the van keys out of the ignition while my husband was driving twice going 50 miles an hour almost killing both of them but we shouldnt step in....

Let me tell you something we not only are stepping in but we will do everything in our power including finding out what and who she is associating with because it is our job as parents to keep our kids safe...We found out she has a fake ID and gets into all the bars and we have decided as parents to do everything we can to stop it before she gets raped beaten or killed.. She left at 4:30 in the morning walking the street without a phone so I guess we should just let it happen and not worry ,sorry you are so far off I cant wait till you have children of your own and I dont want to hear that if we only tell our children we love them because we tell them on a constant basis and thought we had a good repore with them..

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password

Jeez you people really don't give kids enough credit.. I don't know what kind of decisions you made in your lives but kids (even teenagers) DO have common sense -.-

I would honestly never ask for my child's password unless I had legitimate reason to be worried or thought they were somehow unable to comprehend why we don't share information with strangers. Kids nowadays grew up on the computer (whether you like it or not it's reality and a major part of even elementary school curriculums). Therefore, it's a lot different now.. Just because it's such a big deal to parents to kids it's common sense.. If this isn't common sense to at least a 10 year old kid (let aloneee a 16 year old!!) then I do not knowk what you've taught them. No offense to anyone But I Just don't understand why you have no faith in you're child understanding something that in this age is so simple as your taught it fr the time you can talk. From someone who is an adult now but used FaceBook from probably 15 yrs old.

I can assure all the others out there commenting that most teens are smarter than that.. My parents never asked for my Facebook password because they know
I was an averagely smart kid who could handle their own "safety" on the internet. I'm not saying the internet isn't dangerous, however I am saying that if you taught your kid basic safety about strangers etc and haven't completely sheltered them from the realities of the world (INCLUDING people pretending to be someone they're not) then I would personally trust my 15 year old self as well as my friends at the time to be on facebook unsupervised as long as you helped them chooseappropriate security settings initially...
Anyways that's just my opinion but really this is something each family has to decide on their own

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password
trust a teens judgement thats a joke i was 15 once and my mother had to go to the morgue to identify a body which thank God wasn't mine but it sure the hell could of been and this was be fore internet which is alot larger spectrum of kids to find danger unknowingly. you still have to watch kids in public to prevent abduction so why not o the internet.i've taught everyone of my kids self defense if someone trys to abduct them but how is that going to help them as well if they meet a stranger online and r fooled into trusting them to go to a place without people around and end up in a shipping container to be sold int sex slavery which is more profitable than the drug trade!!!!! dont fool urself their are more predators online than any where! hell a grown young lady got grabbed right outside of a major shopping center quit fooling urself !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

child's Facebook password
I just found this webpage up on my profile of our shared computer, and I figure she was tying to download this service. What hurts me is that I don't even own any social media account other than my email, and she's never even asked me what I do when I'm online. I can't believe she'd do this behind my back. I'm very upset. I don't care what anyone's parent thinks is right. At least talk to your child before doing something like this. It's very mean.

Re: How to get your child's Facebook password

Sorry guys, a GOOD parent doesn't HAVE to check their kids social networking, but a good parent SHOULD check it! The fact that there are so many people attacking a parent on this site for doing what's right is, well, just plain stupid! How many kids, good kids, have been hurt, threatened, or even killed because they were so trusted to do the right thing? Kids are going to be kids. Meaning, whatever, they, OR they're friends find cool. How many of you, dated people older than yourselves, lied to your parents, and just did things you'd today, think are dangerous, or wouldn't want YOUR kids doing? At some point, we have to stop being friends, and go back to being parents. Don't be the one asking, "Where did I go wrong?" Monitor your kids.

You can trust them. You don't have to trust their friends, or any other kook they meet on Facebook, Instagram, or any other site.

My 2 cents.
